New Guinea is one of the world's greatest palm diversity hotspots. With around 270 species, the island is home to some of the most beautiful and varied palms, many of which are of great economic importance to rural communities. The 'Field Guide to the Palms of New Guinea' is the first identification aid to the palms of the entire island, down to the genus level. Designed as practical aid to conservationists, horticulturists, field workers and students it makes extensive use of keys, line drawings and colour photographs, so that anyone with a basic knowledge of botany will find it a pleasure to use.
